The required late-lunch reading

Sheila has a long essay on one of my favorite actors in his best movie: William Holden in Stalag 17.

And for truly crappy movies? Rocket Jones---but of course. And don't forget Truly Bad Films where our old pal Liz, hombre in chief Pep, and yours truly (if I can ever find the damn entry code!) dish out the lowest of the low from the greatest truly bad films of all time. I'm a true weasel, as I'm overdue to Liz on my "why Helen Hunt is the greatest actress of all time" post by, oh, about six months now. Like I say, I'm a weasel.

I so agree about Holden. I first saw him in Sunset Boulevard (amazing!!) - and then went on to see most everything he did. Network to this day blows me away. But it's in Stalag 17 that he is really fantastic - and he makes you feel like nobody else could play that role but him.

'Sok - I just got Flash. My Helen Hunt re-but might be very animated.

Ordinarily he was insane, but he had lucid moments when he was merely stupid. Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)
